If you have been impacted by sexual violence, know that it's not your fault. We support you.

UPEI's Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Office (SV-PRO) is a safe and confidential space for students, staff, and faculty who have experienced sexual violence to obtain support. No matter when, where, or what form the sexual violence took, let us connect you with services that are trauma-informed and suited to your individual needs.

The SV-PRO is committed to fostering a culture of consent on campus by supporting survivors and providing the University Community with education and awareness around issues of sexual and gender-based violence. We all share the responsibility of ending sexual violence.

What is Sexual Violence?

Any sexual act, or an act targeting a person’s sexuality, gender identity or gender expression, whether the act is physical or psychological in nature, which is committed, threatened or attempted against a person without that person’s consent. This includes, but is not limited to: sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, indecent exposure, voyeurism, sexual exploitation, degrading sexual imagery, and distribution of sexual images or video of a community member without their consent.

This definition and more are found in our Sexual Violence Policy

Supports for Sexual and Gender-based Violence during COVID-19

If you are experiencing abuse, harassment, or violence in any way, know that you are not alone and you do not deserve to be mistreated. There is help available.
